If you’ve never listened to your gut, now is probably the time to start.

Leading nutritionist Shona Wilkinson gives us her top food choices that can improve our digestive system.


Fermented foods
Yoghurt WR

Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickled vegetables in brine, yoghurt, buttermilk and kefir would be a great start to kick start your digestion, as they help feed the friendly bacteria which reside in our gut helping them to multiply in a healthy environment.”


Avocado WR

“Fibre rich foods such as avocados, nuts, seeds, broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, asparagus and green beans may help relieve digestive discomfort and enhance overall digestive health.”


Bone broth 
Bone broth WR

“Bone broth is important for healing the gut and aid healthy digestion. The gelatine found in bone broth is a hydrophilic colloid, this means it attracts and holds liquids, including digestive juices, thereby enhancing digestion. Bone broths are also rich in glycine, an amino acid (protein) found in collagen, which is important in maintaining a healthy gut lining.”

Cinnamon WR

“Cinnamon is a lovely spice to add to your food. Not only does it improve digestion but it also helps to balance blood sugar levels.”

Mint WR

“Mint has been shown to help soothe the abdomen and relax digestive discomfort.”

Skool note: Mint tea has proved a life saver for period pain.

Fennel WR

“Fennel may help with flatulence and intestinal spasms.”

Tumeric WR

“Turmeric is rich in curcumin which has anti-inflammatory properties and is particularly useful for inflammation in the gut. Turmeric also helps with fat digestion, along with supporting the liver.”

Healthy fats
Sushi WR

“Healthy fats such as salmon, seafood, nuts, seeds, avocado, coconut, and pure olive oil should be included in your diet. Fat molecules are a rich source of energy for the body and help the body to absorb vitamins.”
